Our COVID-19 Services

We offer the full range of COVID-19 testing and use UKAS-accredited labs. Results include a lab report and certificate which can be used for approved international travel purposes (such as fit to fly certificate) where necessary. Please note that it is your responsibility to determine which test you require, and the timeframe in which you need to be tested. You can read the UK Government guidelines for travel here. If you are unsure, we would be happy to advise.

PCR Testing

PCR testing involves a swab sample being gently taken from the throat and nose which is sent by courier to the laboratory for analysis.

Premium PCR Test – £195

Our premium service provides results by midnight the SAME day if swabbed before 11am or by midnight the NEXT day if after 11am.

Standard PCR Test – £175

Our standard service provides results within 48 hours of the sample reaching the lab (please note this is not 48 hours from the time of the swab – samples will typically arrive at the lab mid to late evening).

Rapid Antigen Testing


Rapid antigen testing is performed on site, using one of two Government-approved devices. A sample is gently taken from one nostril with results available in 20 minutes.

This test is useful for those with symptoms, or asymptomatic patients who have been in contact with somebody with COVID-19. The test is also accepted by some countries for international travel.

Antibody Testing


If you are interested in establishing whether you have had COVID-19 in the past, we can also provide IgG antibody tests. These tests are 99% specific, and up to 97.5% sensitive. Sensitivity does decrease the longer the period since your symptoms, but we can discuss this during your consultation.

Result available next day.

We can come to your place of work, school, university or college and offer significant discounts for group bookings of six or more.
